A sewer line that provides service to about 80% percent of Nantucket's homes broke late last week, forcing officials to send more than 2.5 million gallons of sewage into Nantucket Harbor. Crews worked throughout the weekend to install a bypass to reroute the sewage back to the treatment plant.

WCAI's Kathryn Eident talked with Nantucket Natural Resources Coordinator Jeff Carlson early Monday morning for an update on how things are going.
